Welcome Baby Colin!In-home Newborn Session, Fort Worth

 

Lightly Photography 2016

This little guy made his entrance into the world on September 15th at 6:58am. Colin weighed 5lbs and 5oz at 18.25 inches long.  He might be small but he makes up for it in cuteness!  This little guy was so precious and loved to keep his hands up by his face during our session.  We are so happy for Rachel & John as they enter  this new stage of life!

Welcome Baby Jaxon Ryder!Newborn portraits in home

Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

Welcome to the world sweet little Jaxon!  You are already so loved and Mommy an Daddy are just amazing parents already!  I loved coming into this home and sharing a day with this new little family.  Jaxon was a doll – a perfect gentlemen for his photoshoot and oh so cuddly in his parents arms!  From Michelle & Dustin’s wedding at the Modern Art Museum to now it is beautiful to see how they have grown as a couple.  Their marriage is strong and their love for one another is fierce and I know that that love will just grow as they raise this little man.  Thank you so much for once again inviting us into your lives, your home and into your family!  Congrats on such a lovely little baby boy!

Welcome Jaxon Ryder!

Hannah is 5 months old and just as sweet as ever!!  We were so excited to photograph this little munchkin again!  She is so smiley and giving so many expressions these days.  Hannah loves it when her mommy and daddy read to her, when Grandma sings “I’m a Little Tea Pot”, and swinging her new swing!  She also enjoys being outside at the park.  We love having the opportunity to photograph this sweet family just doing what they do in their everyday lives.  Can’t wait til the next time!

Welcome baby Statt!In Home Newborn Session

Lightly Photography 2016Brittany and Greg welcomed home baby Luke on May 23rd weighing 8lbs and 11oz at 21 inches long.   Baby Luke is quite precious!  He loved being held and cuddled by his parents, and ate in between most photos!  His nursery was decked out in elephants and even had a custom name sign that his dad made.  We can already tell that Brittany and Greg will be great parents.  We loved being able to capture these precious moments of this new family of three!

Lifestyle portraits Amanda McCollum Annie Norvell Lightly Photography-004

We, as photographers, absolutely love what we do. Whether it’s capturing the moments of your wedding day or making time stand still with a family portrait, photography brings us so much joy.  Then there are the times where we have the opportunity to use our talents to help bless the lives of others.  This may be my favorite.  When thinking about what you can do to serve another person, photography does not always come to mind, but in certain situations what could be more precious and more treasured than those captured memories?  Memories of good and happy times that will last a lifetime.  I (Amanda) am so grateful to one of my best friends from high school who referred to me to Jordan and Zach a couple of months ago.  This incredible couple welcomed their beautiful baby girl, Hannah into the world in March.  At only one month old, sweet Hannah was diagnosed with SMA type 1: a form of spinal muscular atrophy that affects infants within the first few months of their lives. The diagnosis of this specific genetic disease is an incredibly heavy situation, as all the muscle groups eventually lose tone and deteriorate.  This, however, does not effect Hannah’s mind and she is a happy, 3 month old baby girl who loves playing with mom and dad, balloons, getting her diaper changed and bath time.  Oh man does she love bath time!  Annie and I arrived at Zach and Jordan’s home to photograph them just hanging out and going through their daily routine.  Hannah loves watching dad make silly faces and holding her balloons.  When it was time for her bath though, oh that smile just made our hearts melt.  The whole time we were there, she was happiest in the water.  Zach would help her float and then hold her so she could dip her head back into the water and she was just having the time of her life!  After bath time, Hannah pretty much falls straight to sleep, so we took that opportunity to get a few more photos with mom and dad.  I am so impressed with this amazing couple and I am so glad to know them now.  They have some hard trials, but also out of those trials you can see they are also wonderfully blessed.  Hannah is such a beautiful and happy girl and we are truly grateful to have the blessing and opportunity to use our talents to capture this time in their lives.  We look forward to seeing Zach, Jordan and Hannah again and watching her grow.  If you would like to know more about Hannah please visit https://www.crowdrise.com/hannah-elizabeth-costlow-   or https://www.hannahcostlow.com/pages/frontpage

Welcome to the world baby Collins!  This beautiful family welcomed their 4th baby and her 3 older siblings couldn’t have been more excited!  It was so fun to be in their home and watch them interact with each other and their new little sister.  Ellis and Hayden couldn’t wait to get to hold her and did so well getting their photo taken with her.  Carson nearly brought me to tears when he started whispering “I’m your big brother” to his newest sister.  It was the sweetest thing and so touching.  We are so excited to share some of our favorites from their lifestyle newborn session.  Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-007 Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-002 Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-003 Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-005 Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-006 Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com Newborn Session in home lifestyle Lightly Photography-001 Lightly Photography 2016 http://lightlyphoto.com

Welcome baby Oliver! – In Home Newborn Session

In home newborn session family portraits Lightly Photography-014

Baby Oliver is here!  We are beyond excited to share this beautiful in home newborn session.  Meagan and Jason recently welcomed their first baby boy, Oliver into the world and he is absolutely precious!  Although their fur baby, Bella, might have been craving a little attention since she is no longer the only baby.  She was so happy to have more people around to pet her.  It was wonderful to see Meagan and Jason adjusting so well to parenthood and to be able to capture them in their home.  Oliver is one lucky little dude to have such amazing parents!  Congratulations you two!  You have a beautiful little family.

Welcome Preston! Newborn in Home Session

Lightly Photography 2016Welcome to the world little Preston!  Big brother Parker is definitely excited to have a friend although I am sure he is really ready for you to grow into a little boy so you can make  messes, play outside and be loud and crazy with you.  Until then Parker was pretty content to snuggle you on Mom & Dad’s bed and show off – he is a rocking big bro already!  Preston is adorable, sweet and cuddly.  He showed up a little early, we had scheduled to do a family maternity session a few weeks ago but the night before I got a message from Mom with a photo of this little guy just a few minutes old.  With it – the information that they would not be making the maternity session the next day!  He came on his time and on Preston’s due date we photographed these in home newborn photos.  Loved watching Mommy & Daddy with their two boys!  Congrats!
